we all lose in this game.
Apparently Zero motorcycles may go through these taxe increases because electric/ecologic.
According to the european manager of Zero Motorcycles
I believe the link says Zero will not be subject to the new tariffs, but the source was off the record.
Yes it looks like that.. author of the article use conditionnal, and it is not a public statement from Zero or some EU official .
Zero fans... are you also Reddit users? See: https://www.reddit.com/r/ZeroMotorcycles/
Thanks for posting the link. Had not heard of reddit.com
Is there censorship in Reddit? I don't bother with censored tech sites.
Took one for a 3 hr test drive and it was the MOST FUN I HAVE HAD on a motorbike PERIOD....
... apart that is from the pedestrians not hearing and waking out while texting lol

Yep. Everyone who borrows my Zero comes back smiling if not laughing out loud with joy. Zero has caught lightning in a bottle.
But now that I've owned one for 9 months and ridden it in all conditions in the mountains, city, and flatlands, I'm a tad disappointed that Zero has neglected some functionality that could elevate their motos from super fun commuter/toy to truly great: traction control mainly to manage that huge torque at zero rpm plus no flywheel or other hindrance to wheel spin, and also cruise control, more aero with fairing and windshield (=more range), lower COG factory high current charging options, optional more upright rider position, and more.
Zero surely is hearing this feedback, as it's all over on the emoto forum and elsewhere. Curious that these customer requests have been ignored. In January we will know what the HD livewire will offer in comparison. HD could eat Zero's lunch if their price is competitive (acknowledging that no serious emoto price is competitive) and Zero doesn't step up.
Hoping that competition benefits the consumer.
I went out and bought a real dual sport bike, an Africa twin and it's the second most fun!

This is pretty much tantamount to declaring on a laser forum -- hey i just bought a halogen light, it's the second most bright
That Zero FX ZF7.2 looks pretty sweet. I am currently in the market for a ~$10,000 plated dirtbike.
This might be something I could get behind...
I live on the wrong coast though...
Nevermind... Just saw a couple of rider reviews... Sounds like this thing is really not up to the task of being a dirtike. Maybe one day...
I'd like to ride one to get my own perspective. Might be the most awesome short range dualsport ever!
But doesn't seem like its a replacement for a dirtbike.
Looking at getting a DSR.. just for commuting.. and maybe a little off road trails. I'm not expecting much for off road but it will be a free bike for me. Its costing me as much as the gas I'm saving. We'll see how well it does commuting. My work has a couple charging stations already.
Hell, I'd ride the s#it out of one of those for the free! Looks like a blast!
How are you getting such a cool hook-up? Work?
I'm really excited about the future of electric bikes. With a little ingenuity, due to the modular nature of the electric components, it may be possible to mod a current electric bike into something that rivals the performance of future electrics, in the future... If that makes any sense... I keep re-reading it and I'm not sure it does... Upgradeable is what I'm saying...
How many miles do you have to drive to save $10K in fuel?
I'm getting it used.. so $8K. and it will amortize itself in a little over one year... However, it's money toward a the bike vs. throwing away to the gas station. Then you have to consider the resale value of the bike. So far less than one year. Probably closer to 6 mos. depending on the resale value.
Ya, pretty sweet.. huh? I asked them a few years back about putting in charging stations when I was thinking of getting a Nissan Leaf or a Fiat E500. It was an emphatic NO! Then about a year ago, 2 charging stations just showed up in our parking lot. SCORE!
How many years are left on the battery warranty and how much will be the bike be worth when its dead?
